  13th October Mei's first show in youth class

 A Sweet Lullaby of the Windy Lands - Mei was shown first time in a youth class and the judge Jadranka Mijatović gave her excellent 1 and j CC with a very nice description that you can see under Mei's profile. She really enjoyed being in a ring and was smiling the whole time. It looks like she takes after her daddy Dandy - int ch, multi ch Essanjay Encore.

 

   23th - 30th July A visit of Finland

What a fabulous week spent in Finland surrounded by collies that I've been admiring for ages! My friend Katarina Petrič from Aydeen kennel and me went to Finland mostly to visit our babies, Damon and Amber and also to  meet some of the world's most famous collie breeders and their collies. We were blown away by the quality of the collies that live there and friendliness of their owners.

  

With my baby boy Damon, I was so happy he still remembers me ♥

                                                                                   

  28th April 2012  The puppies are 4 months old

One day before his 4 months birthday, our sweet teddy bear Damon left for Finland. The last month we spent together was amazing and a goodbye was heartbreaking. But I was really happy how relaxed he was during the flight and how nicely he accepted his new family. He has found a great home, where he will be loved and cherished as a family member, as well as shown and hopefully used for breeding. I hope he will make them proud and they will make him happy. Our 2 and 4 legged family already miss him dearly so I am planning to visit him real soon!

I wish you a long and happy life my dear Damon and hope to see you again soon! ♥

   April 2012

We spent a magical afternoon on Saturday, 21th of April, when all the puppies gathered again at the Holy collies ranch. The puppies got to know their father, the incredible Dandy, who has become a Serbian, Slovenian and international champion in the last few months. He charmed everybody with his loving and active character and I was so happy to observe how all of the puppies are so much like him! We had a little show training with professional handler Lana Premk and all the babies showed real talent. Later they spet a day playing and running, it was just like they never left their home kennel!

 3rd March - 1st April 2012  Puppies leaving

 All of our puppies have now found loving homes! I miss them loads but I am happy they are bringing joy to their new, amazing owners!

Tai is enjoying with Alma and Boris in a big house with a huge garden, where he is spoiled rotten. His new best friend are Mr. Cat and Mr. Rabiit:)

    

 

 Mei went to live on a hill overlooking the entire Slovenian seaside and she can run freely as there are no roads near. She lives with Milena and her family and they all adore her. She has already started going to a puppy school and I am very proud of her.

   

Because of reservation, which was later cancelled, Naj stayed at Windy Lands for another month. This was one of the best months in my life. We spent every afternoon outside with my 4 beautiful babies, Sky, Lia, Naj and Damon. It was never boing when Naj was around, it's wasn't a minute when he wasn't running around, exploring, playing with brother, sister and mum and bringing me frisbee or running through agility tunnel.

I absolutely love his character and I was really tempeted to keep him but then a really nice couple, Maruša and Jurij came along and at the first day of April my sweet beautiful boy went to live in our capital city Ljubljana. They decided to name him  Messi as he is just as fast and agile as the famous football player Messi. We all miss him terribly here at Windy Lands, I still get tears in my eyes seeing his photos and Lia, Damon and Sky are going around the house all lost searching for him. But I think Naj/Messi is really happy in his new home and he has already found a place in their bed;) Maruša loves him dearly I am sure I couldn't have found a better place for him. 

 

   

He loves to pose and I found him absolutey stunning ♥

   28th February  2012

 The puppies are 2 months old and they will soon leave us to go to their new homes. I am trying to enjoy as much time possible with them as we will miss them terribly here at Windy Lands. We had our fist biggest trip this week as we went to the specialist to check their eyes in a town 2 hours from here. They all behaved great in a car and their eyes are ok! We also had many many visitors coming to admire our little beauties so we spent a really nice week.

Here is the last picture or all the litter together

The puppies are 8 weeks old and all they want to do is stay outside, run, play and explore. It's almost imposible to keep them inside. We are learning how to come when called and some basic commands (sit down, wait). They all know their names very well and they are all showing a good agility and frisbee potential. They now eat only 4 times a day, which is a real luxus for me:) They were also vaccinated for the first time and microchipped and everybody at the vet's was melting when seeing them:)

 

Here all together with their mummy

                   The boys                                                             The girls

The ball!!!!                                               Exausted after a loong day outside:)

 

They are all showing their little characters already.

Damon is the most independent and a real explorer, he is constantly escaping from the puppy pen and going around the house.

   

 Naj is the breavest and the most laid back guy who loves to run and catch balls of frisbee. He is a lot like his mummy.

Mei is our little sunshine, smiling all the time and loving to run and catch balls. She is the most like their daddy.

 

Tai is our pretty boy with the cutes little face and he is a very sweet and cuddling nature.

And Lia is my little star, she is not afraid of anything and loves everything and everybody. She is the happies outside, where she can run freely and play with her litter mates and her mummy. When inside, she loves to cuddle, mostly with me:)

 The puppies are 7 weeks old and they finally met the outside world! They absolutely love it! They are running around, exploring our garden and agility field. Lia loves it the most:) They now eat only 6 times a day, so I can finally get some rest:)

All together, look at all the happy faces:)

 

They love to explore and play together

 

We got a visit from Sky's brother and his owners     This is how Damon rests after a hard day:)

 Mei got a visit from her new family and the affection was mutual! She will live at the seaside on a hill overlooking all of the Slovenian and a part of Croatian and Italian sea! She will have planty of fields to run freely and they will train agility with her. I am really happy she got such amazing new owners. She will go in co-ownership as well and if everything is ok, she will have a litter or two under our kennel.

The puppies are 5 weeks old and they are real energy bombs! They are curious about everything and everybody and they are the happiest when visitors come and cuddle them.  Now they eat Acana kibble and the all think that 'the grass is greener on the other side' so they always try to eat from their sibling's bowl.  Also our baby Lia is growing beautifully!

This is how we cuddle

 

Mei in Tai like to watch TV:)

Now we really know how to pose!

The puppies are four weeks old and they've become real bandits. They all see, hear and walk very well and they have real battles to see who is the strongest. They've started eating 'normal' food but every time mum passes by they still go crazy for her yummy milk:) We had first visitors and they were really happy to have so many people for cuddling.

 

 

Children are great!

We already know how to pose:
